It's no secret that scented candles make for an excellent gift. Think vanilla, rose, jasmine, ocean breeze. I can't think of a single reason to not buy one or all of these for my oh-so-many moods. Think of how delightful PMS will be, sleeping next to a therapeutic lavender-scented candle.
Now, can you imagine opening a gift that has a vagina-scented candle in it waiting to get lit (pun intended)? That's right, the first bizarre thing of 2020 has finally hit us and it's a vagina-scented candle! Made by Heretic Parfum for Goop, Gweneth Paltrow's lifestyle company, the candle is being sold as 'This Smells Like My Vagina' on Goop's website. Apparently, it smells exactly what it sounds like--the Iron Man star's vagina!
According to reports, Gweneth and perfumer Douglas Little of Heretic Parfum were experimenting with new fragrances when they concocted one that reminded the actress of how a woman’s private part smells. But instead of scrapping the idea, they thought it would make an ideal candle scent. Hence, 'This Smells Like My Vagina'!
Heretic is a perfume brand that handcrafts fragrances from all-natural ingredients. That's how they differ from their competition. Aromatherapy, Ayurveda and alchemy is a promise that comes in every product they make. We are just wondering how they managed to transfer all this in the Gweneth Paltrow's vagina-scented candle. Although, it could be therapeutic for men, especially those who are fans of Pepper Pots *wink wink*. And it costs $75 (Rs 5,300 approx), so it must be something!
"A little naughty, but oh so nice," is how Heretic describes the scent. This special limited edition candle was sold out within hours of going live. But, its high demand has people joining the waitlist to get their hands all over it (if you know what I mean).
"With a funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent, this candle is made with geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed to put us in mind of fantasy, seduction, and a sophisticated warmth," reads the candle's description on Goop.com. It’s blended with vegetable wax and has a lead-free cotton wick.
Admit it, you are intrigued. Aren't you?
